Read: Psalm 119:97-104
The website BibleGateway looked at the viewing habits of their monthly visitors. The most-searched-for verse in 2010 was John 3:16. It tells us that God loved us so much that He sent His Son to save us from our sin and give us everlasting life. Number 10 on the list is Jesus’ commission to His disciples to spread the good news: “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations” (Matt. 28:19). Among the top 10 are Jer. 29:11 and Rom. 8:28 that talk about God’s good plans and purposes for His people.
The Bible is filled with truths to search out and share. In Ps. 119, the longest chapter in the Bible, the psalmist shared his thoughts about the Word and his desire to search it and be taught by God. He said, “Oh, how I love Your law!” (Ps. 119:97). In our passage for today, the psalmist gives some of the reasons for loving God’s Word: It gives him wisdom and understanding, it restrains his feet from evil, and it is sweet. That is why, it is his meditation “all the day.” Let us keep taking quality time to read and study the Bible. The more we search the Word, the more we will grow in our love for it and its Author (Ps. 119:97).
